    Wii scratching discs?

    it seems that my wii is scratching my games. i bought all of them new and they all have very small rings but still noticeable when you look closely, they dont go all around the disc but i tried cleaning it off and it was definately a scratch. it doesnt affect the games at al but im wodering if i should send my wii in for repair. actually one game doesnt have the scratch. it kinda pisses me off because the games are not cheap and the system appears to be slowly destroying my games. can you do me a favor and check and see if this is happening to you also? any ideas? a fix? thanks

    Well I don't think its your Wii, its simply more a matter of you putting it in and taking it out, you don't mean to but that sometimes causes scratches. Also the Wii tends to that, its bound to happen, but if it gets serious and your games stop working, send in your Wii.

    It's not bound to happen. The Wii should not be scratching discs in the slightest ever.

    If you see concentric circles on your disc, then you most likely have a problem with the Wii. It's unusual for nintendo products to scratch discs. IMO Nintendo discs are better quality than PS2 discs. Make sure that if you are moving the Wii at any time, that there is no disc inside.

    Yeah, I just checked some of my discs and they also appear to be just fine. If you constantly keep removing and inserting the discs, then that may be the root cause of your problem.

    I don't change them that often but I do move the console around sometimes(not while its on though) I borrowed a game from a friend last week and have been playing a lot and today I checked it and it doesn't have the aerial scratch, what could it be scratching it though? nothing touches the disc when its inside, a laser just reads it. could it be dust or something? I don't really wanna send it to nintendo

    The vertical orientation is perfectly fine. Just don't bump it hard WHILE it's on (and that applies to sitting horizontal too).
